This weeks theme is top 5 sequels on my TBR. To clarify my list, I only chose sequels that are already out and I’ve already read the previous book in the series. For example, A Sky Beyond the Storm by Sabaa Tahir is top of my TBR, but it doesn’t come out until December. Also, Crooked Kingdom by Leigh Bardugo is one I intend to read very soon, but I haven’t yet read Six of Crows. Therefore, I won’t include either of those on my list. As per usual, these will be ranked in order from top of the list to bottom.
1) Restore Me // Tahereh Mafi
I blew through Unravel Me and Ignite Me earlier this year, loving both of them. Therefore, I’ve definitely been really interested in picking up the continuation trilogy. The main reason I haven’t yet is because I felt content with the original trilogy, so I decided to focus on finishing up other unfinished series before starting Restore Me. I’m hoping for some more quick, entertaining content from the new installments, although I’ve heard mixed things.
2) Cress // Marissa Meyer
I read Cinder and Scarlet a long time ago, but really enjoyed both. Although I’ve been removed from the world for so long, 2020 has been the year of continuing and finishing series I’ve put off for so long. Now that I’ve gotten through some top priority ones (The Darkest Minds, The Girl at Midnight, Red Queen, etc.), the Lunar Chronicles is at the top of the list. Although Cress and Winter are daunting in terms of page length, I have a strong feeling I’m going to love them.
3) Clash of the Worlds // Chris Columbus and Ned Vizzini w/ Chris Rylander.
I read and enjoyed House of Secrets a while ago, and just recently read the sequel Battle of the Beasts, which I was underwhelmed with. However, I am still very much interested in finishing up the trilogy with Clash of the Worlds, and given that I read book 2 so recently, I would like to do it very soon. I don’t expect to absolutely love it, but I am eager to see how everything wraps up.
4) Wundersmith // Jessica Townsend
Wundersmith is one of the newest books I added to my shelves. It is the sequel to Nevermoor, a really popular middle grade book that was released a couple of years ago. I thought book one showed a lot of promise, and I’ve heard book two only improves on it.
5) Clockwork Prince // Cassandra Clare
I finally decided to get on the Cassandra Clare bandwagon this year by reading Clockwork Angel. For the majority of that book, I wasn’t very impressed, but the ending really escalated the story for me. Although I wasn’t clamoring to read the sequels, I am still excited to read on and hopefully understand the hype a bit more.
